I think that having a gun itself is not tragedy , but using it is something different.

If there was no weapons in the world today, people would be fighting each other with swords. I believe no one should have a gun. It is so easy for an accident to happen.

It would be very dangerous if everybody owned a gun.

I think that nobody should have a gun, because, for what do we need it :?:
Only think about it. If everybody has a gun what are we going to do :?: Kill everybody :cry: and when you have killed every one...[color=#000000]WHAT
:?: :?: Are you going to kill yourself also :!: :?: :shock:no, I think that the world will be a better place if guns or any weapons doesn't exist. Because if anyone has a gun or any weapon life will be much easier, without a gun or a weapon we could not kill or injure anyone, so the besat thing is :!: weapons desapearing

From my point of view,it 's unlogical think that the violence can be erradicated with more violence,so we don't really need guns or weapons if we are able to discussion with the others in a pacific way :wink:

Only security agents (police, rent a cops, etc.) should have guns in my opinion, and maybe is a good thing too that they had, but if it's a radical choice between nobody and everybody, then I prefer nobody. That's the way I've been brought up, to fear guns and to try to solve things with words rather than with violence. It's very curious the disparity of opinion between Americans and Europeans in that respect, I wonder if there's something genetic in that.

Nobody should have a gun.. NO AND NEVER!!

Because when same people get angry they take a wrong decision like useing the gun.´They can also use another things but its dont go so fast like a gun!!

Its take 2sec. to take a gun and shoot a person. and after few minutes. the person will be dead.
But it will also take 2 sec. to take a spoon,fork or pot.. but more then 10 minutes. to kill the person!!

Yeah,but if someone kills you with a gun it`s better than to kill toy with something else,cuz the pain is smaller.

Yes there will be more pain but. When the murder not use a gun.. But you will have more time to run a way,and you will not be very hurt the first hit! But if is it a gun you will be half dead the first hit!

Nobody should have a gun. In my opinion all thinking people must hate guns. I detest violence with my whole being. The gun violence is a serious social problem. So many people lost friends, family members, loved ones to gun violence. I think if nobody had a gun, nobody would shoot to death by a gun. by Lydia

Nobody should have a gun. The reason as following in my opinion, people must hate guns and I dislike violence with my complete.

The gun violence is a serious social problem in some countries. Under the terms of the criminologist Philip J. Cook hypothesizes that if guns were less available, criminals may likely commit the crime anyway but with less-lethal weapons. He finds that the level of gun ownership in the 50 largest U.S. cities correlates with the rate of robberies committed with guns, but not overall robbery rates.

In a word, so many people lost friends, family members, loved ones to gun violence. I think if no one had a gun, nobody will be shot by a gun. by Lydia

I see the question like "Should we all live or just the stronger ones?"
And I think we should all live. The fools aren't useless.

I heard, in Brazil, young peaple have a gun and blackmail anoter person who is driving on the road. My Brazilian frend tolled me that it's very common in Brazil. I was very surprised and shocked. I'm Japanese, so it's incredible in Japan. I think it's necessary to gurard myself, but it's not necessary what to use a gun. In my opinion, having a gun set on awful violence in the world.

It's so hard for me imagine a world without guns... To get a perfect world, guns aren't the problem. The big problem is the human being and our inexhaustible selfishness. The operation is easy and almost impossible: not selfishness= not guns. So the worst weapon and simultaneously the worst enemy we have "invented" is the selfishness.

Nobody should have a gun, because an accident it's very fast arrived. Imagine there are an burglar and you fire on him, and in reality it's not a burglar but a friend come to make you a surprise. Or a child plays with the gun, he's thinking that it's a toy and he fire on her father to play to cowboy what happen? A father dies and a child is traumatized, so many stories like that just because there are a gun, it's stupide to spoil the (family) life and so many lives to be regretted. The argument to be safe is not applicable to everybody. There are some people very serious and healthy and other are unhealthy or paranoiac... we can't generalize a rule. It's for it that it's commplicated to authorize in some and not in the others...this is why nobody should have a gun.

Nobody should have a gun! Why do we fear,from whom?
If we think negative,almost bad things will happen.

Also we are affected psychological badly ,since we distrust anything

There is no exit from this. We must relieve our mind.
We don't need a gun!!!
